Following on from the recent thread asking if celebs have ever tweeted you I thought I'd ask if anyone else has been blocked by any celebs on there?

I wonder why some of them join Twitter if they can't hack negative critcism? Obviously if someone is abusive towards them that's understandable, but some people block you just for making negative comments about them.

I was most recently blocked by Marcus Bentley who narrates Big Brother because I complained that I didn't like how biased his commentry had become since the show moved to Five. I didn't even tweet him directly, just mentioned his name but he saw it somehow and now I'm blocked.

I've also been blocked by Dan Wootton, Clare Powell and Josie Gibson but I don't particularly care because I don't like them.

I don't count any of those as celebrities.

Celeb twitter is just for self promotion. I notice a flurry of activity and question and answer sessions in certain celebs arond the time they have something to promote.

The WWE wrestler Goldust famously blocks people who bore him with inane chatter or pointless messages. Steven Moffat says on his profile that he blocks rude people.

I don'tunderstand why people are delibrately mean to celebs are anyone else on twitter but some people are really vile, if you don't like someone then don't follow them,just because they are famous it does't mean they should accept abuse.
I do agree however that quite a few celebs use twitter for promotion only, I know of one celebs girlfriend who isn't famous herself who uses twitter to promote herself in the hope that she can get herself a career in the limelight...

Brian Dowling blocked me.
I also didn't tweet him directly, but agreed with my friend who tweeted that he was a rubbish TV presenter.
But he isn't really a celebrity.

Not a celeb as such, but Dean Piper was having a go at Nikki Grahame constantly talking about her Anorexia when she was on TV. I thought it was low even by his standards so I tweeted back "Thats a bit harsh on Nikki. Then again form the last time i saw you on tv I wouldnt expect you to understand Anorexia". So he blocked me, but it was worth it. Professional Gays can give it but not take it. (no pun)

I'd consider that a badge of honour, Vodka!

Neither am I, and although I've never been blocked, I've seen some celebrities block people because they offer mild criticism of the celebrities current project...which is wrong and it's a twitterculture than can and should be ridiculed.

Since when has the narrater of Big Brother been constituted as a "celebrity"?

Dan Wootton, Clare Powell, Josie Gibson, who are these people? How exactly are they of celebrity status?

I was blocked by Antony Cotton after he tweeted for someone to bring him a suit for the NTA's because apparently hedidnt have to time to get one. When I politely pointed out that it was a bit cheap him begging for freebies and he should be buying his suits he took the hump and blocked me! He blocks anyone how dares to criticise him, he really is a jumped up little Queen.

WWE's Shawn Michaels blocked me a few days ago after I asked him how he knew god existed and told him that he couldn't fight his way out of a wet paper bag in real life.

A lot do this undoubtedly, but some do genuinely like to communicate with fans - especially 'minor' celebrities who probably appreciate the support more. That's not to say that no really well known people don't use it that way too though!

I am pretty sure this is exactly the reason why most people are blocked on Twitter.

They'd not be so smart mouthed if they were to speak to the person eye to eye but give them a keyboard and suddenly they get all brave and think they can say what the hell they like to anyone and then moan because they were blocked..

What I don't get is. If you don't like the person: what kicks does one get from giving them aggro online - is it some pathetic ego trip or something.

I don't like spinach but I don't go out of my way to look for it. I don't even think about it, far less what to discuss it.

Well said. My thoughts exactly.

Antony Cotton because I said his behaviour in I'm a Zeleb was disgusting and childish, and Dan Wooton because I called him a misogynist.

They've probably blocked you because they've heard it all before, especially those blocked by Cotton and Wootton. You think they're suddenly going to change because a stranger sent them a message highlighting their faults on Twitter?
